I can’t lie … Dan Hurley is a pretty cool cat.

When Saturday’s game between UConn and Providence got underway, Huskies head coach Dan Hurley wasn’t happy with his team’s start whatsoever. However, the finish made him smile, and straight up flex on ’em.

In UConn‘s 74-60 win over the Friars, Hurley spent a lot of the final minute chirpin’ with an opposing fan who was sitting in the second row. After that, Hurley was waving his arms to egg on other Providence fans, and then as he was leaving the court, he raised both his index fingers.

“I just told him, ‘I’ve got a national championship ring, and we won the regular season in the Big East, and we’re champions,'” Hurley told reporters after the game, per ESPN. “‘And you should shut up, and you shouldn’t be running your mouth at that point in the game. You know, just get out of here. You know? Just go.'”

And there was also some footage of the incident that Hurley didn’t mention, and I’ll be honest, I can’t help but to find the Huskies skipper to be a little bit of a G. And this is coming from a lifetime Husky hater.

But come on … how can you not be down with this party?


This very well may be the first March Madness where I don’t hate UConn … crazy how things change.
